ED Behavioral Health Unit
Hasenstab Architects provided architectural and interior design services for a new 67,000 square foot, Level 1 Trauma, emergency department facility with 60 patient care spaces.
Hasenstab Architects worked with Cleveland Clinic Akron General’s staff, Huddy HealthCare Solutions, and the engineering teams to design a new building able to accommodate 65,000 – 75,000 visits per year.
Within the emergency department, a dedicated, five-bed behavioral health area provides a distinct and separate space for treatment. A secured, central observation area allows caregivers to safely monitor patients.
The ED behavioral health rooms have the same general layout as the other ED rooms; however, retractable tambour doors were included to secure utilities from patients who might try to harm themselves or others. Ligature resistant accessories and lockable cabinets also add to patient safety.
